Wooden Wigwams - Experience a touch of luxury in the great outdoors

Do you dream of a UK camping holiday, but feel put off my the rain, discomfort and the cold? Well maybe Glamping is for you!

Glamping is camping’s trendy new friend; combining all the benefits of the great outdoors but without the mud and soggy canvass.

Metalfury have recently been helping the National Diving & Activty Centre (NDAC) with their move into the Glamping arena. The NDAC wanted to offer some low cost accomodation to their divers and tourists visiting the Forest of Dean.

The NDAC decided that rather than just offering a standard campsite, they would invest in the latest in glamping accommodation in the form of Wooden Wigwams. Sleeping up to five adults, Wigwams are the ultimate eco cabin; double-glazed, secure, cosy and warm whatever the time of year. A low cost alternative to hotels and B&Bs, their Wigwams truly offer all year round camping, and the best bit, no pitching a tent in the rain!

Wooden Wigwams make 600 mile journey to NDAC ChepstowThe NDAC ordered their heated cabins, the land was prepared, the infrastructure was put in place and in the meantime Metalfury kept busy keeping the NDAC news pages and twitter feed upto date with the wigwam developments. Then on a rainy February day six Wigwams made their 600 mile journey from the manufacturers in Scotland to the National Diving & Activity Centre in Chepstow.

The team at the NDAC were keen to take advantage of the upcoming sunny weekend and start taking bookings. So with only a couple of days, metalfury produced the branding for the Wigwam accommodation, a microsite, web banners, promotional flyers and supporting artwork to go inside the wigwams themselves.

It was quite a slog to get everything done and it required quite a lot of caffeine, but we managed to get everything done on time and the wigwams are proving to be a great success. We are really pleased with the results and are looking forward to a relaxing glamping weekend in Chepstow over the summer; toasting marshmallows around a camp fire and sleeping under the stars!

metalfury thanks cards

metalfury thank you cards

With Christmas over and 2011 fast approaching it is a good time to start writing those thank you cards for all the nice gifts that you have received.

The metalfury robot thank you cards have featured in a blog written by Poppy Sparkles in an article called Give Thanks.

It can be all too easy after the madness of Christmas and the overindulgence to overlook one’s manners. I have been brought up to always write a proper thank you – not a phone call or a passing comment of thanks, but a handwritten note or letter.

… No matter what your handwriting is like, these lovely thank you cards will ensure your gift-giver is left in no doubt that you appreciate their kindness.

Poppy Sparkles goes on to show a great collection of thank you cards, all available on Etsy
